Over 1000 calls for 18 rescued Yorkies:

On Monday, we reported that 18 Yorkies were taken to the Animal Rescue League of Western Pennsylvania after their owner passed away.
Executive Director Dan Rossi told us the 18 Yorkshire terriers seemed to be in good condition, and well socialized. But they were desperately in need of a bath and grooming.
Though he stressed that the dogs would not be available for adoption until next week, that didn’t keep the phones from ringing ever since the story aired.
“We’ve had over a thousand calls for 18 rescued Yorkies here, so just unbelievable,” Rossi said the following day. “The most demand or response we’ve ever had for any media story we’ve ever done.”

I hope the "unlucky" callers will decide to look at some of the other rescues that are available.

2. I had a rescue Yorkie who looked a lot like these dogs.

He was a joy.
